Noisy Cameras!

When I open any of my cameras, there is a very loud grinding noise. Like an engine running. Very difficult to hear what’s going on in the environment at the camera is surveilling. Why do the cameras make this noise? What can I do about it?

@exhbrian Feedback from your phone due to being close to the camera?  Again, six cameras and none of mine are noisey. Did you call support to troubheshoot?

I have the same problem and I'm viewing the feeds from the other side of the country.

@OrganicJen​ Which camera is making that noise when you view your livestream: indoor or outdoor? We do have a known issue where either of the cameras can produce a buzzing sound when viewing a livestream or recording.

I have been dealing with this issue for over two years. My biggest issue is Simplisafe keeps sending me new cameras with the same problem. So frustrating.

There was a previous thread for this that has now disappeared from the forum but was archived on google. 

It was said that a “fix” was in the works but it’s been at least 2 years.
